Microsoft is confirmed for TGS

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Microsoft is confirmed for TGS

Copy and pasted from NeoGaf

Even though the console isn't coming out in Asia in 2014, Major Nelson confirms they will be at TGS. I wonder if they opened up that wallet again for Japan support or will this be the debut of Microsoft Studios Osaka.

I'm going to call it.

Idolmaster 3 exclusive to Xbox One.

 

naaaa, just kidding. That'll never go back to Xbox. 



Why??



If Microsoft wants to attack Sony at its roots, then they have to attack in Japan. It certainly won't be enough to win Japan, but getting japanese exclusives will also pay off in western territories.

You can play as an octopus, though!

typo or is xbone not coming to asia until 2015? ..i'll assume typo.



Around the Network

No no they just are just wasting money..
PS: I tought Xbox will be released late 2014, maybe you meant not coming in 2013



Buying up more jrpg's confirmed?



Now that's interesting. Could they have some Japanese exclusives planned? Why bother? I don't think there is any way at all Japan is going to go for the XO.

This will probably be for appearances and not much else.



Maybe it will be launching there early 2014?



Well that's an interesting one, getting in there pretty early.

With MGS5; FFXV and KH3 they are at least on equal footing with any/everything Sony have shown for Japan so far, which is a good thing for them I suppose.

Then again, this generation taught us that even with a price AND games advantage, it still wasn't enough. I wonder if there's any tricks they'll be able to pull out of the hat to change that this time around - I suspect it'll be harder for them to get the exclusive support they had, so it would take something extraordinary.

I also wonder what Sony have to show for Japan. Famitsu was hinting at a PS4-Japan-Event coming before TGS.
